Ambler Campus: Lecture: Dr. David Robertson — “Stewardship Challenges in a Suburban Natural Area"
Start Date: 11/8/2013Start Time: 12:30 PM
End Date: 11/8/2013End Time: 1:30 PM

Event Description
Join David Robertson, Director of the Pennypack Ecological Restoration Trust, as he presents “Stewardship Challenges in a Suburban Natural Area: Deer, Floods, Invasive Plants and People.” Managers of urban and suburban natural areas are confronted with challenges of scale not faced by managers working in less disturbed landscapes. Through specific examples, Dr. Robertson will explore the four principal characteristics of urbanized ecosystems that are responsible for the extraordinary difficulties confronting urban natural area managers — fragmentation, habitat reduction, human proximity and land use changes. He will conclude with a “thought experiment” about the successional trajectory of urban ecosystems without human stewardship. This event is free and open to the public.
